Since 1995 the Annular system has been manufactured ten-thousandfold and is available nowadays in the following sizes: 24, 30, 36 and 38.
Its revolutionary concept, altough 20 years old, still represents state of technology in annular parachute manufacturing and has been adapted almost unmodified to the design of light-rescue Annular EVO.
Its particular annular shape achieves up to 35% higher towed load than common rescue parachutes with similar surface.
The performance of Annular Classic positively affects a scissors position of the paraglider. The lower vertical speed, the less is the scissors position between glider and rescue system, as the paraglider due to low sink rate can not build up enough ascending force to cause a scissors position.
The series due to its shape shows excellent pendulum stability, thus makes smooth landings possible.
The final development step in manufacturing Annular Classic was the development of deployment accelerators: RAM air pockets. These pockets achieve fast and retainable opening even at low speed.
- Exceptional value for money
- Large surface
- Ram air pockets: for the fastest and most reliable opening ever achieved in annular parachutes
- Pendulum stability
- Well-proven annular shape
- Easy to pack
- For high towed load at low sink rate
